For Global Activism, we talk with Michael Lindenmayer. He was working on a slum project in a developing country when encountered a child who was up to her waist in human excrement. The child was in an area where slum dwellers defecated in the open. Lindenmayer promised himself he would do all in his power to combat the problem - and the idea for ToiletHackers was born.
Every Thursday on Global Activism, we hear from a Chicagoan who works to make the world a better place. Today, we focus on two individuals steeped in the world’s water crisis.Water plays a central role in global poverty. Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease.
